this morning from the white house on these reports, peter? >> reporter: the latest word, bill, that the obama administration is deeply skeptical of the claims assad is making in syria because as press secretary jay carney says the assad regime has lost all credibility in the eyes of the world but carney made crystal clear the president's position about chemical use, chemical weapon use in syria being a red line has not changed. >> the president clear when he said if assad and those under his command make the mistake of using chemical weapons or fail to meet the obligation to secure them, there will be consequences and they will be held accountable. >> reporter: we still don't know what the consequences would be because carney wouldn't tell us yesterday but he told us the president will talk about what is happening in syria with the leaders of israel, palestine and jordan before he heads back to washington. bill: one of the main topics on the trip. peter doocy live in washington. mart has that a bit more on that. martha? martha: these are not the first we've had out of syria. the rebels accuse

vulnerable before 2014 elections. one writes to dean, it will never get through the house unless obama comes out against it. so, people seem skeptical about congress. is that shocking? >> it's not shocking at all. you know what makes it unbelievable to all of us is 90% of americans in polls support universal background check for anyone to buy a gun, to close the gun show loophole but still this is may not pass congress. forget the assault weapon ban. congress does nothing. doesn't work on budget, doesn't pass gun control. we should take a page from the nhl owners and nba owners and lock congress out for a month. let them work in a parking lot or motel 6 because they're not doing the job. republicans a >> i stopped reading tweets on the air but i'm doing it just for you. >> this is big. a new retro. >> we followed up those skeptics with this question, how can we push congress to just get things done. one of your fans tweeted, i'd lock them all in the room with same stuff they feed federal prisoners and not them out nlg they get something done. another said, make their paychecks tied to perfor
and democratic leader nancy pelosi are there representing all of us. president obama at the white house yesterday. i was there when he introduced his nominee to be the next secretary of labor tom perez. good guy good man, he'll do a great job as secretary of labor. today the president is celebrating a sort of a delayed st. patrick's day with a big lunch celebrating the patron of ireland at the united states capitol and a big reception tonight at the white house and then the president leaves for that trip to the middle east. we have lots to talk about this morning, and lots you're going to want to talk about right here on current tv. billy zane stars in barabbas. coming in march to reelz. to find reelz in your area, go to reelz.com you know who is coming on to me now? you know the kind of guys that do reverse mortgage commercials? those types are coming on to me all the time now.

's happening. secular progressives are running wild with president obama and the white house. they feel unchained, liberated and they are trying to diminish any form of religion. the goal is to marginalize religious opposition to secular programs. for example, in canada, in china, a woman can have an abortion for any reason at any time. secular progressives want that here. but traditional forces in america are in opposition. therefore, in this country, you can't terminate a baby without to be born without a damn good reason. if you do abort a latham late term baby you can be charged with murder. sp's hate that in scandinavia there are laws that say you cannot criticize minorities and if you do, you could be arrested. secular progressives want laws like that here. also, of the legalization of drugs well underway in many places. and that is the secular cause. so, if the far left can marginalize santa and the easter bunny. if they can tell the children those symbols are obsolete and unnecessary, they then set the stage for a totally secular society in the future. and that's what you have i
on the floor of the house saying obama-care is going to kill women and children and senior citizens. the real assault on the constitution was, of course, created by republicans, the heritage foundation in '89 brought in the center alternative to the bill passed by mitt romney and endorsed by jim demint in 2008 and as soon as president obama took it up, they turned on it right there. the power the president has decide writing republicans will be that next day or next week or next month is enormous and deeply depressing. >> i feel like looking at freudian slips in social policies or policies that aren't as central to their agenda in washington is actually an important window into them not really being invested into policy at all. i think the republican party is really going to reinvent itself, messaging isn't the key part of it. being rooted in policies for the country. >> ezra, msnbc analyst, thank you. >> thanks. >>> president obama gave a big, very highly anticipated speech in jerusalem today. while he was in jerusalem he got a major award. the way the american news media covered that moment
are running wild with president obama in the white house. they feel unchained, liberated and they are trying to diminish any form of religion. the goal is to marginalize religious opposition to secular programs. >> well, o'reilly went on to say that they can tell children that those symbols are obsolete and unnecessary then that sets the stage for a totally secular society in the future. what the heck is a spring egg anyway? >> i don't know. you call the spring bunny little candy bunny the spring bunny and peeps. >> easter. >> anyway. okay. although easter is right around the corner. it sure doesn't feel like it. that is landing america's favorite groundhog in some hot water this morning. punxsutawney phil may be heading to court for predicting an early spring. it's true. phil the groundhog has been indicted in ohio for the misrepresentation of early spring. an ohio prosecutor says that phil was calculating and predicting spring despite snow and record cold temperatures that followed. >> i think need more to do that? >> okay. well, let's get your first degree weather update with maria molina
that president obama has visited the u.s. ally as president. i'm joined now by myra miller and adviser to house speaker john boehner and senior vice president at the winston group. and doug schoen, fox news contributor. myra, that is the criticism. the white house says they have a lot of important plans for this trip and it's very significant since it's the president's first trip there, what say you? >> any time the economy is in the situation it is now it tends to evoke questions about why he would go overseas. this is much more about atmospherics over substance. surveys continue to show the american public is very supportive of israel and sympathetic. but it calls i b into question, what is he trying to accomplish with this trip. martha: that is the question. in an interview last october president obama was asked in the heat of the election season. why haven't you been to israel as president. he says when i go to israel i want to make sure we are actually moving something forward. >> if he can restart the peace process between the arabs and the israelis that would be moving something forward.
obama on what the white house is pushing in reaction to the tragedy in newtown. if joe biden said, yeah, the assault weapons ban, let's being honest, it's not going anywhere, i think it would have somewhat a chilling effect on the momentum and the push broadly to get something done. he is the public cheerleader, the cheerleader has to frankly cheer. he has to say, i think this is still possible. i think joe biden, look joe biden spent a long time in the senate. he knows in his heart of hearts, the assault weapons ban is almost certainly doomed. he doesn't want to jeopardize the other pieces, high-capacity magazines. maybe broaden background check. universal background checks. he wants to keep those in play. i think that's why you're seeing him sort of put a brave face on. >> and i want you to play a little bit of the sound of that joint appearance by mike bloomberg and joe biden today on guns. >> even though restrictions on military-style weapons will not be part of the bill that goes to the floor of the u.s. senate, it will get a vote by the full senate as an amendment to the bill. and

to reconcile these two documents. the house budget would balance after ten years. repeal obama care. no tax increases. the senate budget doesn't get to balance after ten years, it includes $1 trillion of tax increases, even some stimulus money to try to get the economy going. but it's significant that they're fighting at a lower level of intensity and turmoil. notice that the congress left for easter break without a crisis over a government shutdown. there was no crisis over potential debt limit, and government default earlier this year. could come back this summer but so long as it lasts, that's calming for the markets and good for the economy, and it may, lester, leave some space still for a compromise in which democrats would agree to changes in cuts in medicare and social security, and republicans would come up with a little bit more tax revenue, lester. >> all right, john harwood tonight, thank you. >>> president obama wrapped up his four-day visit to the middle east today, after helping israel and turkey end a three-year diplomatic dispute. that, in turn, will help the region deal wit
appearances it was a status quo returning us to the division of power obama in the white house, democrats have controlled the senate and the republicans in the house for. but appearances can be deceiving and they are. the most important reality of that election is that the republican to oppose anything and everything proposed by obama almost like a parliamentary party was not reworded. taking the debt ceiling hostage was not reworded. calling the obama health care plan, which was their own only a few years earlier, socialism was not reworded. that means they have to begin to rethink themselves, and importantly, democrats will not automatically embrace the same tactics in opposition so that was an important change that creates a new dynamic not that's going to solve our problems, but there is going to be no sitting around the campfire in washington making nice with one another. but the possibility now exists for a real effort and a successful effort to deal with our most pressing problems. >> too familiar washington faces, thomas mann and norman borkenstein it's even worse than it looks. this i

barack obama has let jordan at the end of his visit to the middle east. the white house had set low expectations for this trip. the main purpose seemed to be reasewering israel that the u.s. is a committed ally. looking back now on president obama's four-day tour. >> looking at the pictures you might think president obama was simply on holiday, touring the ancient city of petra in jordan. in israel, marveling at the dead sea scrolls. but these visits were carefully crafted events meant to send a message to israelis about his correction -- connection to the land they believe dates back to biblical times. the support is believed to be what pushed israeli prime minister benjamin netanyahu to apologize to turkish prims recep tayyip erdogan about the raid. supporters at the israeli expandoes killed nine turks aboard an aid ship carrying activists trying to end the blockade against the -- against the gaza strip. >> it's in the interest of the united states that they begin this process of getting their relationship back in order. >> the entire focus of the president's trip was to strengthe
program. >> the white house is on a charm offensive. last week, barack obama spoke on israeli television, addressing directly some of israel's concerns. > i have been crystal clear about my position on iran possessing a nuclear weapon -- that is a red line for us. it is something that would not only be dangerous for israel but would be dangerous for the world, dangerous for u.s. national security interests. >> in washington, it is no secret that obama does not have a good relationship with israel's prime minister, benjamin netanyahu. even if they put on a united front in public, as here in washington last year. >> they have fundamentally different views of how to advance peace in the area. the president started off by pressuring israel to make concessions, and israel, understandably, resisted and resented, and it has been like that for the last four years, unfortunately. >> israel looks to the u.s. to safeguard its very existence. republicans are quick to point out that while obama visited egypt during his first term, he never went to israel. they accuse the president of pandering more t
proposing since president obama won the white house back for democrats. and look what happens to the conservative rationale for budget can you tell us when conservatives get more honest about the debt and deficit. a conservative columnist says about the new ryan budget, it sacrificed seriousness for seriousness by promising to reach budgetary balance, not over the long term as budgets 1.0 and 2.0 did, but in a ten year window. this is not going to happen, and more importantly there's no reason why it needs to happen. modest deficits are perfectly compatible with fiscal responsibility. talk about singing a new tune. and the conservative think tank, the american enterprise institute asks why does the budget need to balance in ten years? debt reduction doesn't require balance, just that the economy is growing faster than the debt, while the plan does put the debt to gdp ratio on a downward trajectory, it probably doesn't need to be quite as steep. ezra klein, this is a big deal, and you're here on this show to prove it is a big deal. you would never come out this late if this was
